This specialist MSc combines earthquake, structural and geotechnical engineering with infrastructure design, assessment and management. The aim of this programme is to produce the next generation of leaders in earthquake engineering and natural disaster risk management. Students will have access to the state-of-the-art BLADE/EQUALS laboratory, including one of the most advanced earthquake shaking tables in Europe. The University of Bristol is one of 14 partners in the UK Collaboratorium for Research in Infrastructure and Cities (UKCRIC) to develop a world-class, national infrastructure research community. Throughout the programme students will work together with expert staff and international partners, exposing them to real-world challenges that engineers face. One of the many highlights of the year is a field trip to an earthquake affected area in south-east Europe. Students will have the opportunity to visit structures designed with innovative methods to resist earthquake forces or inspect the damage of a recent aftermath by using modern tools for non-destructive material testing and remote imaging. The costs of the trip – accommodation, travel, daily subsidence and insurance expenses – are included within the tuition fee for this programme. This MSc programme is accredited by the UK Joint Board of Moderators which means that the professional qualifications acquired are recognised by the Institute of Civil Engineering (ICE), the Institute of Structural Engineers (IStructE), the Institute of Highway Engineers (IHE) and the Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation (CIHT) as meeting the requirements for Further Learning for a Chartered Engineer (CEng).
